KansasFest

An annual Apple II computer convention held every July in Kansas City, Missouri. http://www.kansasfest.org/

KansasFest is the world's only annual convention dedicated to the Apple II computer that revolutionized the personal computing industry. Held every year in Kansas City, Missouri, KansasFest invites hobbyists, retrocomputing enthusiasts, and diehard aficionados to gather from all corners of the world. Hackers, programmers, users, gamers, and curious observers come from Hawaii, Massachusetts, Florida, England, Australia, Japan, and many other places by plane, train, bicycle, and Vespa. What do they do once they're at KansasFest? Attendees build, buy, sell, and swap hardware, including Ethernet cards, CompactFlash adaptors, and replacement floppy drives. They code well into the night to compete in the annual HackFest. They give presentations on everything from overlooked software gems to new product demonstrations to emulating the Apple II on modern cell phones. They wander from room to room, checking out and showing off each other's setups, chatting with old friends and making new ones, ordering pizza and making 3 AM trips to Denny's and watching movies like WarGames. KansasFest is about a computer and a camaraderie unlike anything else. The Apple II attracts people of a certain mindset and spirit who exhibit a rare creativity, resilience, dedication, history, and nonconformity. The Apple II has lasted for more than 30 years, and the friendships and memories made at KansasFest will last even longer.

Thanks to the Internet and social media, cultural artifacts can be disseminated in a distributed fashion faster than ever before. When something attains phenomenon status via viral means, it becomes a meme. But, just like a real virus, memes can quickly die off. What's everyone talking about today that will be gone tomorrow?

The Apple IIgs has a split personality. Most of the machine runs at a ~1MHz clock rate, keeping compatibility with earlier Apple IIs. Some components, however, can be decoupled and run at a faster rate. The FPI, or Fast Processor Interface, is the chip responsible for coordinating the interactions between these personalities. In this KansasFest 2011 session, Daniel "Krue" Kruszyna includes a high level overview of the FPI's responsibilities, along with a detailed look at some...

The incredibly open nature of the Apple II for development, down to the inclusion of schematics in every box, encouraged a generation of users who were also programmers. By contrast, today we have the walled garden of iPhone OS, where Apple judges all. Between these polar positions is the Macintosh. How have Apple - and Apple users - evolved over the years? Has using computers become more or less creative? What tradeoffs have we made between accessibility and empowerment? How do the Apple II...
